    Default Meet the Tea Party Candidate Who Plays Nazi Dress Up on Weekends

    http://gawker.com/5659792/meet-the-t...zi-on-weekends



    Ohio GOP nominee for Congress Rich Iott likes to dress up as a Nazi officer and run around with other weirdos in the woods on weekends. But don't worry, he has only a "purely historical interest in World War II."

    Iott is running for Congress and hopes to represent Ohio's 9th District in Washington next year. He's a Tea Partier, and he also happens to be a WW2 re-enactor in a group called Wiking, which relives the battles fought by Germany's 5th SS Panzer Division Wiking. The Atlantic's Joshua Green caught up with Iott and asked him why he likes to dress up as a Waffen SS officer and play with other adult men in costumes:

    I've always been fascinated by the fact that here was a relatively small country that from a strictly military point of view accomplished incredible things. I mean, they took over most of Europe and Russia, and it really took the combined effort of the free world to defeat them. From a purely historical military point of view, that's incredible."

    Yeah, that's pretty incredible alright. Iott told The Atlantic that he initially joined Wiking "as a father-son bonding thing." And he even had a nom de guerre, Reinhard Pferdmann, to make his war criminal role playing even more authentic.

    What do actual historians say about Wiking, and the SS unit they re-enact? Retired professor Charles W. Sydnor, Jr. told the magazine, "These guys don't know their history. They have a sanitized, romanticized view of what occurred." No kidding! He added, "If you were to put on an SS uniform in Germany today, you'd be arrested."

    The New York Times did a comparison article on the Beat Generation and the Tea Party recently. Here is a link to my blog, which has a link to the article, for the sole purpose of generating hits for my blog.

    Well, I know you tend to lean right. Wasn't sure.

    Good to know you weren't being serious.

    It doesn't matter. People are incredibly stupid when they're angry that all of their most far-flung desires aren't being met by the so-called Messiah. Democrats are going to lose both the House and the Senate this fall and Obama's on the verge of becoming Jimmy Carter 2.0.
    Upcoming Shows:
    * Dillon Francis + Anamanaguchi -- December 28th

    Going to Weekend 1 of Coachella 2014

    So long as it doesn't mean that people are going to elect Sarah Palin, thinking that she's Ronald Reagan 2.0...

    They're not going to elect her thinking that, they're going to elect her thinking that that awful privileged and uneducated cunt is going to serve their (ignorant poor/not-as-rich-as-they-feel-they-deserve-to-be white people) interests.

    When you white people talk about other white people as the devil, are you including yourself, excluding yourself, or just altogether not considering yourself in the equation?
